A word from Jane
Jane is a casual American bistro located between Greenwich Village and Soho. Since April 2001, neighborhood regulars and destination diners alike flock to Jane for its value-priced brunch, lunch and dinner menus. Jane also serves as an ideal location for private events, from business dinners to baby showers.

At Jane, the menu showcases an affinity for local ingredients with what New York magazine calls “cleverly tweaked but unpretentious American cuisine.” To complement the food, Jane offers a hand-selected, extensive wine list and seasonally driven cocktails.

Jane is the sister restaurant to The Smith East Village, The Smith Lincoln Center and The Smith Midtown.

Diner Reviews
  • "Tried new dish and its still amazing as everything else"
    Dined on 8/17/2014
  • "Amazing ghnocci although too small for the price. Nice service and ambience. Down size is that restaurant was not full and they were rushing us to leave."
    Dined on 8/17/2014
  • "I used to always take visiting friends here and would go here for special occasions. They have raised their prices several times in the last year. They changed their recipe on my favorite dish. So not only does it cost more but you get less. The hostess is always rude, even when I was having a birthday brunch there. I'm kinda over this place. I hear Penelope is fantastic."

  • "Their brunch is fantastic. It has a wide selection, all of which is delicious. I highly recommend their vanilla french toast."

  • "nothing extra-ordinary in taste or presentation, just too pricey"
    Dined on 8/16/2014
  • "We discovered this for Sunday brunch and we've been coming for couple of years for dinner; recently we've notices food quality have gone down while the prices have gone up slightly. This was our neighborhood place, we need to look for a new restaurant. For the amount we pay there are many other better restaurant with more interesting menu."

  • "Great place, waiter was a little inexperienced but sure he'll get better. overall nice place, nice food"
    Dined on 8/14/2014
  • "I booked this place for brunch to celebrate the success if a project with my team. It was 8 of us and my one year old baby. As soon as we get there The blond hostess was already being extremely rude to us beacuse we had ONE person missing. The 8th person was stuck on the subway. The baby doesn't understand that we can not eat beacuse we are ahort one person so I explained the situation and she proceed to be rude and told us we would have to wait 30min. What's the point of making a reservation them?? We left and went to Dos Caminos and had a great time!!"

  • "I've only been to Jane twice but each time was a great experience. Both times I went for brunch and this time the service was actually better. I wish I could remember the waitresses name but she was sweet and very attentive. Must try the Lobster Egg Benedict! so filling and the buttermilk biscuit instead of the traditional English muffin is an awesome choice."
    Dined on 8/10/2014
  • "The staff at Jane was exceptional at our recent dinner. I let them know it was the second anniversary there of our first date. They arranged for us to have the same table and even provided a free appetizer. They were solicitous and helpful in every way. It's one of our favorite places downtown!"
    Dined on 8/9/2014
  • "Tried their sweet and savory brunch items, all very nice. Everything crepe and their rosemary home fries are definitely worth noting. Wish they can expand their pancake, french toast choice, these are very brunch popular, if they can do their own twist and add new elements into them, they should be a big hit too ( now the french toast is just normal, nothing special, and no pancake option)."
    Dined on 8/9/2014
  • "Our waiter was very attentive, friendly and knowledgeable with the menu. Food was delicious and the restaurant was cozy, clean & romantic."

  • "Highlight of the brunch: orange juice and Benedict Johnny. The vanilla bean French Toast was good but nothing special. So was the Mac and cheese. Service was great even when the house was packed. I wouldn't wait in the massive weekend line. Definitely make reservation."

  • "A great spot for brunch when in the area. Service was great and of course, the food was delicious!"
    Dined on 8/3/2014
  • "I go to Jane pretty often,so its nice to see that they added few new things to the menu.Their home fries probably the best i ever tried and eggs Benedict never disappoint neither.Good food,nice ambience and free drink with any brunch item on Sundays what could be better)"
    Dined on 8/3/2014
  • "Great service, however we had the $32. Prime Rib and they offer NO horseradish sauce. Really? So lame. It's a staple with PR anywhere, get it together Jane!"

  • "Finally scored a brunch reservation here for a birthday celebration. Many were waiting for tables but we were quickly seated. Our waiter David V. could not have been more obliging, and there seemed to be backup servers accompanying him at all times. All our needs were anticipated. A lovely young woman brought us a dessert (in addition to those we had ordered) that the waiter sent to our table at the end of the meal. It's hard to make brunch very different (it's mostly about the eggs), but the menu had inventive touches like a lobster benedict dishes; the Balthazar pastry basket ($13) was bountiful and sublime; and the desserts we tried (panne cotta with yogurt, a grownup take on smores and flourless chocolate) were excellent."

  • "Picked Jane to try out for a quick dinner for three of us on a Friday evening. For a busy evening, the service was exceptional -- attentive and upbeat. Can't say enough about our waitress. The menu was fairly straightforward -- salmon, steaks, chicken -- but all well prepared and with serving sizes that were just enough without being either too skimpy or too much. Will definitely include on our list of places to visit the next time we're down in SoHo."

  • "delicious truffle ricotta gnocchi! surprising, since I don't normally like potato-based gnocchi"
    Dined on 7/29/2014
  • "We arrived on a hot, muggy day, inside it was cool, if a bit noisy. We were seated immediately and served promptly. I thought the food took a bit too long to prepare, but realized, when it arrived that 1. it was worth the wait, and 2. you don't get perfect poached eggs if you rush. The food was delicious and my visitor really loved everything about Jane."
    Dined on 7/27/2014
  • "food took 40mins to come and my eggs benedict was overcooked (the yolk was not runny). was pretty disappointed since friends had recommended it though I guess the free drink that comes with the brunch entree makes this one of the cheapest brunches I have had in a while."
    Dined on 7/27/2014
  • "This was the perfect place for a great brunch with friends. With our reservation, we were seated on time despite the crowd outside. The wait staff was terrific, the food was wonderful and unusual (and could be modified where needed for our vegetarian and gluten-free friends), and the neighborhood ambiance fit the occasion perfectly."
    Dined on 7/27/2014
  • "Food was good and the restaurant had a fun atmosphere."
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "best pork chop I've ever had - the burrata was amazing as well! We were a bit early for our reservation but they seated us right away."
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "You haven't had gnocchi until your've eaten at Jane. The burger was amazing as well, but the gnocchi is the best ever. The service was great, and the menu matches the energy of the clientele. An absolute treat!"
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "I like Jane--the food is solid, especially the quiche, which is delicious (the secret is brie). But overall it's a bit pricey, with brunch entrees averaging around $18, even if the portions are big. They did give us the option to order a half-portion of the French Toast which was still plenty big. Oh and the coffee is kind of bland."
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "The food is awesome, and the price is reasonable. I definetly am planning on coming back."
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "A little crowded, but fine place to grab brunch with friends. For that many people, the food was served fast enough. Would be great to have outdoor dining available. Will be back"
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "Jane is a really great place to go for brunch. For their Sunday brunch they offer a complimentary cocktail to accompany your delicious food. BUT, be forewarned, if you are there for Sunday brunch NY State Law prohibits them from serving you alcohol before noon on Sundays!"
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "I took a friend from out-of-town here and we LOVED it! Friends joined us for the meal and everyone had nothing but the best to say when walking out!"
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "The food was delicious! We started with the gnocchi which was to die for. So delicious honestly it's the signature plate of the restaurant. We had it as a starter but they do have it as a meal. We also had the crispy bacon it was a little too fatty for us but if you're into that you may like it. I had the lobster roll which was very fresh and delicious. The rosemary fries were a great side. For dessert we had the milk and cookies. OMG it was perfect it's an other must have at Jane's. The service was great and they had a great sense of humor. They gave us great tips and make us laugh. All in all a great time."

  • "this is my third time back and each time was really good!"
    Dined on 7/16/2014
  • "Pleasant and casual neighborhood dining. Fresh food prepared well with good sized portions. Gnocchi was very good and brick pressed chicken was moist and flavorful. Interesting wines by the glass available. Very attentive and helpful servers. Only unsuccessful items were Brussel Sprouts (nearly burnt to a crisp) and ice cream (all ice chips, little cream)."
    Dined on 7/15/2014
  • "French toast was the best I've ever had...don't pa an extra $5 for the fruit, not worth it...Eggs Benedict...delicious..."

  • "As always, Jane never lets us down. A fun time with fantastic food. Our go to restaurant in lower Manhattan."

  • "I had heard good things about The Jane, so I was happy to score an online reservation for Sunday morning brunch. I didn't check until Wednesday, so they were completely full between 10:45 and 2:15, even just for a party of 2, so we ended up on the earlier side. Still, there were a lot of people waiting outside, and the restaurant was packed. We ran a little bit late, but were still seated without a problem. The ambiance was vibrant and bustling, but not too loud to hold a conversation. The food was definitely above-average, the Vanilla Bean French Toast was both formidable and delectable. Prices were fair, and included a drink with our entrees, which, unfortunately, couldn't be served until noon, but ended up being worth the wait."

  • "Dined here for brunch on a girls trip. The food was wonderful and the service was superb. Honestly the best French toast I have ever eaten and my friend said her giant slice of quiche was also one of the best as well. I had the Sicilian baked eggs which were cheesy and zesty with the tomato sauce. Definitely go here."
    Dined on 7/13/2014
  • "We met some friends from Bklyn (we're up in Inwood) and Houston Street seemed like a good "in the middle" location. It was a quite surprise. The food was excellent and the staff very pleasant and helpful. We had an 11:30 reservation and we were seating as soon as our full party had arrived. Would definitely recommend the place and come back again."
